The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.


Kunst in Ostwestfalen-Lippe
This book presents 26 artists from the region of Ostwestfalen-Lippe. These artists either live and work in the region or are from the region but now live in Berlin and Cologne.
This contemporary art does not display any one style or unified reaction to common influences. Instead, it is shaped by a great variety of artistic ideas. What is consistent is the idea of a state of tension between locally influenced identity and the formative trends present in the cultural centre. The history of art has repeatedly shown that artistic practice both in the cultural centre and in the periphery can play decisive roles. Therefore this comparison of contemporary art is even more interesting.
The first volume focuses on artists from the area around Bielefeld and Herford.
